Daniel ben Ya’acov Israel

.Today’s parasha, is highly concealed and as I was searching and reading I didn’t found many explanatory information. Josephus the great historian in his book “Antiquities of the “Jews” when, coming to this part of the Torah, do not give any commentary. The Parasha is divided in two parts, so be patient in reading and go to the end, in order to be blessed in your reading. You remember what we discussed many time in former “midrash”, Sha’ul explained that our forefathers, beside their own experience during the exile from Mitzaryim (Egypt) represent our carnal nature (1st Corint.15:45-47),  To start, we must recall some principals in order to understand. Sin (lawlessness) entered man’s life because of Chawa (Eve) and Adam the husband who obey to her voice. Both were one and therefore their actions affect both of them! Please understand this principle, in our own life, sin affect the all body of Messiah.  When you hurt badly your toe on one foot, does the other part of your body say “no problem, the foot can have pain, we don’t have”? Of course not, the all body is affected, and so it is with the Body of Messiah, whose body we are! Now the spiritual side is this: Adam and Chawa (Eve) are both a picture of Messiah and the Assembly (qahal in Hebrew, Ekklessia in Greek). Sha’ul quoting B’reshit (2:24) write to the brethren in Ephesus: Eph 5:31 “For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.”  Eph 5:32 this secret is great, but I speak concerning Messiah and the assembly. .....Shaul call it a “great secret” “musterion” in Greek. We have seen before that the Greek word has its equivalent in Hebrew with the word “sod”, meaning mystery, something hidden. Mystery can only been revealed by יהוה for those who are following Messiah יהושע.  No matter what people may tell you, there are many things which great scholars were not able to see, historian like Josephus, even Rabbis who wrote so many midrash in their “Mishna” and “Talmud” couldn’t understand, because, the revelation is in Messiah:
2Co 3:13 and not like Mosheh, who put a veil over his face so that the children of Yisra’ĕl should not look steadily at the end of what was passing away.  2Co 3:14 But their minds were hardened, for to this day, when the old covenant (that is the Torah) is being read, that same veil remains, not lifted, because in Messiah it is taken away.  2Co 3:15 but to this day, when Mosheh is being read, a veil lies on their heart.
2Co 3:16 and when one turns to the Master, the veil is taken away.
Sha’ul says that the veil i.e. blindness, is only removed when one turns to Messiah יהושע. Brethren do not make a mistake to think that all who profess to be in Messiah, are followers of him, for by our work, man will know if one is a follower of Messiah: Jas 2:17 so also belief (faith), if it does not have works, is in itself dead.
Jas 2:18 but someone might say, “You have belief, and I have works.” Show me your belief without your works, and I shall show you my belief by my works.........We know that Christians claim that the Torah has been abolished by “Jesus”, but as we all know that’s not what the scriptures teach us.  Let us go back to the today’s “Parasha”, and see. The principle is: natural for spiritual. Indeed what happened to our forefathers was real, and happened to them nevertheless the Torah from our forefathers was a “school master”:  Gal 3:21 Is the Torah then against the promises of Elohim? Let it not be! For if a law had been given that was able to make alive, truly righteousness would have been by Torah.  Gal 3:22 But the Scripture has shut up all mankind under sin, that the promise by belief (faith) in יהושע Messiah might be given to those who believe.  Gal 3:23 But before belief came, we were being guarded under Torah, having been shut up for the belief (faithin Messiah) being about to be revealed. Gal 3:24 Therefore the Torah became our trainer unto Messiah, in order to be declared right by belief. Gal 3:25 and after belief has come, we are no longer under a trainer.  Gal 3:26 for you are all sons of Elohim through belief in Messiah יהושע. …….I will also quote the King James Version:
Gal 3:23 ButG1161 before faithG4102 came,G2064 we were keptG5432 underG5259 the law,G3551 shut upG4788 untoG1519 theG3588 faithG4102 which should afterwardsG3195 be revealed.G601
Gal 3:24 whereforeG5620 theG3588 lawG3551 wasG1096 ourG2257 schoolmasterG3807 to bring us untoG1519 Messiah,G5547 thatG2443 we might be justifiedG1344 byG1537 faith.G4102  Gal 3:25 ButG1161 after that faithG4102 is come,G2064 we areG2070 no longerG3765 underG5259 a schoolmaster.G3807  Gal 3:26 ForG1063 ye areG2075 allG3956 the childrenG5207 of GodG2316 byG1223 faithG4102 inG1722 Messiah  יהושע.
I want you to see this word: Schoolmaster: Strong’s #G3807: paidagōgos pahee-dag-o-gos'
From G3816 and a reduplication form of G71; a boy leader, that is, a servant whose office it was to take the children to school; (by implication [figuratively] a tutor [“paedagogue”]): - instructor, schoolmaster.
G3816 Pais paheece Perhaps from G3817; a boy (as often beaten with impunity), or (by analogy) a girl, and (generally) a child; specifically a slave or servant (especially a minister to a king; and by eminence to God): - child, maid (-en), (man) servant, son, young man.
This slave was to bring the child from his master and lead him until the child was able to walk alone, having learn certain principles and didn’t have need of the “schoolmaster” or “tutor”, i.e the slave to be his “tutor” anymore. Shaul keep going saying: “And after belief (faith) has come, we are no longer under a trainer ( schoolmaster, paedagogue);  You may say that because we have no more need of a schoolmaster or tutor we don’t need anymore to follow the Torah! We should make a difference between the Torah and the Tutor or schoolmaster. When Messiah came he became our Master, the Torah remains as the way of life, now we give as much as we can our best ability by faith  to walk as יהושע  walked (1Yocahan 2:6).Messiah is without sin(1Jn.3:4),so he never transgressed. This we have to meditate on it.  Some will say, because we don’t need a schoolmaster any more, we don’t have to keep the Torah, is this what יהושע was saying?
Mat 5:17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets.1 I did not come to destroy but to complete. Footnote: 1The Law and the Prophets is a term used for the pre-Messianic Scriptures.
Mat 5:18 “For truly, I say to you, till the heaven and the earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah till all be done.1 Footnote: 1Lk. 16:17.
One jot, that is in Greek “iota” the tenth letter of the alphabet, the letter “י “ in Hebrew and the “title” is the “apex” of the Hebrew vowel on Hebrew letter to make the sound of the letter as it is demonstrate in the following chart:


In other words, יהושע was saying that the Torah was in no way abolished, and he added:
Mat 5:19Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commands, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the reign of the heavens; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens. Mat 5:20 “For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees,1 you shall by no means enter into the reign of the heavens.
Take note the word which Messiah said: “breaks one”…called LEAST and those who do ….and teaches men” called GREAT in the kingdom of heaven. So, its up to us the decision, to be in the least or to be in the great?  This is a very serious matter unfortunately many today take this warning on “the light shoulder”.
Mat 5:16 “Let your light so shine before men, so that they see your good works (Ya’acov 2:18) and praise your Father who is in the heavens. With this in mind we go back to our “Parasha” and dig, to see what we can see.....
12:1……..when a woman has conceived……..Conceived: Strong’s #H2232, זרע zâra‛ zaw-rah'
A primitive root; to sow; figuratively to disseminate, plant, fructify: - bear, conceive seed, set with, sow (-er), yield............Do you remember the principle taught in B’reshit chapter one,
Gen 1:11 And Elohim said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the plant that yields seed (zera), and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed (zera) is in itself, on the earth.” And it came to be so.
Gen 1:12 And the earth brought forth grass, the plant that yields seed (zera)according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And Elohim saw that it was good.
Gen 1:28 And Elohim blessed them, and Elohim said to them, “Bear fruit and increase, and fill the earth and subdue it, and rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over all creatures moving on the earth.”
The principle is “seed (zera) after “its kind”, human being, been on the top of the creation scale, in order to “subdue” and “rule over it”.  Today humanist all around the world want to give animals same statute as human being! The woman will “conceived”, bring her seed, and if she give birth to a “boy” she will be unclean for seven days, for a “girl” she will be unclean for two weeks or fourteen days! If she give birth to a boy she will remain in her blood thirty three days, if it is a “girl” the time will be “sixty six days”.
I didn’t found a scholar who gave explanation on these verses which of course is not obvious! But let us try to see some interesting concept:   Man child (boy) Strong’s H 2145 זכר zâkâr zaw-kawr'
From H2142; properly remembered, that is, a male (of man or animals, as being the most noteworthy sex): -  X him, male, man (child, -kind).....H2142 zâkar zaw-kar'.....A primitive root; properly to mark (so as to be recognized), that is, to remember; by implication to mention; also (as denominative from H2145) to be male: -  X burn [incense], X earnestly, be male, (make) mention (of), be mindful, recount, record (-er), remember, make to be remembered, bring (call, come, keep, put) to (in) remembrance, X still, think on, X well.
Maid child (female child) Strong’s #H5347 נקבה neqêbâh nek-ay-baw'......From H5344; female (from the sexual form): - female, woman......H5344 nâqab naw-kab'.......A primitive root; to puncture, literally (to perforate, with more or less violence) or figuratively (to specify, designate, libel): - appoint, blaspheme, bore, curse, express, with holes, name, pierce, strike through.
For a man child she shall be unclean for seven days. Seven is the number for divine perfection on earth. Remember that our natural body is NOT redeemed yet, for “blood and flesh cannot inherit the kingdom of heaven”.:  
Rom 8:22 for we know that all the creation groans together, and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.   Rom 8:23 And not only so, but even we ourselves who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, we ourselves also groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body
Sha’ul compared us like also of the suffering before giving birth. Why? Just look ourselves when we are in the flesh especially when we are angry, no brake, but later when we are calm down and so on cases? So lets each everyone of us to judge ourselves..........
Redemption: Strong’s# G629 apolutrōsis ap-ol-oo'-tro-sis.....From a compound of G575 and G3083; (the act) ransom in full, that is, (figuratively) riddance, or (specifically) salvation: - deliverance, redemption.  G3083 lutron loo'-tron......From G3089; something to loosen with, that is, a redemption price (figuratively atonement): - ransom.  
When this will be?:  Luk 21:27 “And then they shall see the Son of Aḏam coming in a cloud with power and much esteem.  Luk 21:28 “And when these matters begin to take place, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”
The woman becomes “unclean” by giving birth. The womb is a closed place with life in itself. During forty (40) weeks is in the water called “placenta”. After forty weeks the child (boy or girl) comes out by force (birth pangs), this is a picture of the “Renewed Israel” coming by force through the great “tribulations” (birth pangs), by water and blood.:  Luk 16:16 “The Torah and the prophets are until Yoḥanan. Since then the reign of Elohim is being announced, and everyone is doing violence upon it.   Isa 13:8 and they shall be afraid:H926 pangsH6735 and sorrowsH2256 shall take holdH270 of them; they shall be in painH2342 as a woman that travaileth:H3205 they shall be amazedH8539 oneH376 atH413 another;H7453 their facesH6440 shall be as flames.H6440 H3851
Isa 13:11 “And I (YHVH) shall punish the world for its evil, and the wrong for their crookedness, and shall put an end to the arrogance of the proud, and lay low the pride of the ruthless.
Jer 30:7 alas!H1945 forH3588 thatH1931 dayH3117 is great,H1419 so that noneH4480 H369 is like it:H3644 itH1931 is even the timeH6256 of Jacob'sH3290 trouble;H6869 but he shall be savedH3467 out ofH4480 it.
Birth pangs are found throughout the “Tanak” and again in the “Brit Chadasha” in the last days:
Mat 24:21 forG1063 thenG5119 shall beG2071 greatG3173 tribulation,G2347 such asG3634 wasG1096 notG3756 sinceG575 the beginningG746 of the worldG2889 toG2193 this time,G3568 no,G3761 nor everG3364 shall be.G1096
Mat 24:7 forG1063 nationG1484 shall riseG1453 againstG1909 nation,G1484 andG2532 kingdomG932 againstG1909 kingdom:G932 andG2532 there shall beG2071 famines,G3042 andG2532 pestilences,G3061 andG2532 earthquakes,G4578 inG2596 divers places.G5117 Mat 24:8  (G1161) AllG3956 theseG5023 are the beginningG746 of sorrows.G5604
Sorrow: Strong’s #G5604 ōdin o-deen' Akin to G3601; a pang or throe, especially of childbirth: - pain, sorrow, travail...................
We have here a clear understanding of the birth, either male or female. 12:4…she remains in the blood thirty three days, she does not touch whatever is set apart…..Compare with what Sha’ul write:
2Co 6:17 Therefore, “Come out from among them and be separate, says יהוה, and do not touch what is unclean, and I shall receive you. 
If you think it is out of context, Sha’ul is speaking of being set apart from unbelievers from what is polluted.  When the male or female baby is born, he or she comes in a place corrupted by man’s sin! This will be so until the second coming of Messiah יהושע to finish the work of redemption, establishing יהוה’s Kingdom on earth. What a great day!  The woman couldn’t approach the Tabernacle during her separation either birth or monthly uncleanness. The Tabernacle is a picture of Messiah and the Assembly in the world to come. At this time the Tabernacle was the place where YHVH spoke to Moshe, a Qadosh place!  The blood: The rebirth of יהוה’s Kingdom, Israel will be during the Tribulation but not without blood, for the blood on many will flow:  Rev 12:1 and a great sign was seen in the heaven: a woman clad with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.  Rev 12:2 and being pregnant, she cried out in labour and in pain to give birth.
Rev 12:5 and she bore a male child1 who was to shepherd all nations with a rod of iron. And her child was caught away to Elohim and to His throne. Footnote: 1Isa. 66:7.
The number thirty three days of uncleanness (33) equal 11 x 3. Eleven is the number for imperfection. Andrew Harris writes concerning the number eleven: “The number for incompletion. If ten is the number for perfection; then ELEVEN is perfect organization plus one more, one extra. Something more than only what was required, eleven is the number of revelation, it is used in the occult, Illuminati, Massonry, etc….The first time eleven is mentioned is b’reshit 32:22, Ya’acov rose up that night and took his two wives, and his two women-servants, and his eleven sons, and passed over the ford Yabbok. At this time Rahel (Rachel) was pregnant with Benyamin the tribe’s number was incomplete! 66 is the number of book in the scriptures and Revelation carries the number 66!”
Remember: Male child 33. She remains in her blood 33 days!.....12:5…..if she gives birth to a female child….unclean for two weeks……she remains in the blood of her cleansing for sixty-six days
The length has become doubled: The symbols are 7x2 equal 14 days. At this point we shall remember that Sha’ul spoke of a “mystery” (sod) concerning the man and the woman, quoting B’reshit 2, and the woman is a picture of the assembly while the man (Adam) is a picture of Messiah, the man been the head of the woman (1st Corint.11:3).  We have seen in the Hebrew word the connotation of coming with violence, curse, and pierce. We can find more understanding in the difference between a man and a woman by reading from Apostle Sha’ul who was very knowledgeable in the Torah. In Ephesians 5:31-32 Sha’ul speaks of a man and a woman, to be one flesh, verse 32 he says, “This is a great mystery”, but I speak concerning Messiah and the Assembly, referring to B’reshit 2:24. This allegorical approach is seen many times in Sha’ul’s teaching (Midrash), giving us a deeper understanding concerning יהוה’s concept in the book of B’reshit. Elohim has always used natural to explain spiritual. Today many refused to go behind the literal text and therefore cannot see the spiritual revelation of the Torah. The Ruach HaQodesh, the set apart Spirit has been given to believers in order to give us understanding (Binah). Binah, understanding is part of the “Tzelem Elohim”, the image of Elohim, in which we shall be transformed and one day been made in the image of Messiah יהושע who is the perfect image of His person (Hebr;1:3).  ....
12:6-8…..burnt offering (olah)………
sin offering (chattah)………..
atonement (kaphar).
Son or daughter she shall go to the priest and bring two offering. The first is the “olah” which means “elevation or holocaust” that is the lamb! And a pigeon or turtle dove the “chattah” offering that is:
chaṭṭâ'âh  chaṭṭâ'th khat-taw-aw', khat-tawth'.......From H2398; an offence (sometimes habitual sinfulness), and its penalty, occasion, sacrifice, or expiation; also (concretely) an offender: - punishment (of sin), purifying (-fication for sin), sin (-ner, offering)........ For atonement! Kaphar: A primitive root; to cover (specifically with bitumen); figuratively to expiate or condone, to placate or cancel: - appease, make (an) atonement, cleanse, disannul, forgive, be merciful, pacify, pardon, to pitch, purge (away), put off, (make) reconcile (-liation).
Who is the Lamb, is it not Messiah יהושע?...Who came in form of a dove on Messiah, is it not the Ruach HaQodesh?   What does it means to cover is not יהושע who cover us with his blood?  But you will ask why giving birth requires offering and atonement? The question is of course important. Since Adam and Chawa man was under sin, which is lawlessness or rebellion against the Torah, יהוה’s instruction in righteousness. Not only Adam and the woman were under sin effect, but also the all creation. Remember before Chawa’sin Adam could speak directly to Elohim, he was close to him, after Chawa (the Assembly picture) sin man and Elohim were separated and man was let alone on earth.:  1Ti 6:16 who alone (that is Elohim) has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or is able to see….The place where Elohim stay has no darkness at all, it is pure light and no man under sinful nature can approach it. Things will be restored in the future after the Millennium reign of Messiah יהושעRev 21:1 and I saw a renewed heaven and a renewed earth, for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more. Rev 21:3 And I heard a loud voice from the heaven saying, “See, the Booth of Elohim is with men, and He shall dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and Elohim Himself shall be with them and be their Elohim....... 
The earth also has been cursed. Some scholars say that the curse has been removed by the flood, but as we can see thorn and thistle are still on earth!
Gen 3:17 And to the man He said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘Do not eat of it’: “Cursed is the ground because of you, in toil you are to eat of it all the days of your life, Gen 3:18 and the ground shall bring forth thorns and thistles for you, and you shall eat the plants of the field..............
The king James says: “thou shall eat the herbs of the field”.this is a very important point as we know that after the flood this mean around 1657 years after Adam’s birth, יהוה, gave Noach the commandment to eat “meat” from animals, this is also another interesting topic and many opinions are spread among scholars, but we will discuss it in another “midrash”, teaching. You have read that it is Chawa (Eve) who sinned; please don’t be shocked, it is a fact:
1Ti 2:11 Let a woman learn in silence, in all subjection. 1Ti 2:12 But I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, rather, to be in silence. 1Ti 2:13 Because Aḏam was formed first, then Ḥawwah (Chawah). 1Ti 2:14 And Aḏam was not deceived, but the woman, having been deceived, fell into transgression.
If you come to our Assembly you may be surprise to see that a woman take the reading of the weekly parasha but the teaching is still from me brother Daniel”. In this case she is his mouth” or vessel to speak. Is not transgression sin? (1st Yochanan 3:4).  Now we can better understand why offering and atonement were necessary!  The woman is a picture of the assembly (you and me) who will sin (transgress) during centuries and will have need of offering and sacrifice to make atonement that is יהושע our Messiah, who makes atonement for us:
2Co 5:21 for He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of Elohim...1Jn 3:5 and you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin.
Rom 5:11 andG1161 notG3756 onlyG3440 so, butG235 we alsoG2532 joyG2744 inG1722 ElohimG2316 throughG1223 ourG2257 MasterG2962 Yehoshua Messiah,G5547 byG1223 whomG3739 we have nowG3568 receivedG2983 theG3588 atonement.G2643 . Lev.12:8…. if she is not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons.  Luk 2:22 and when the days of her cleansing according to the Torah of Mosheh were completed, they brought Him to Yerushalayim to present Him to יהוהLuk 2:23 as it has been written in the Torah of יהוה, “Every male who opens the womb shall be called set-apart to יהוה” –
Luk 2:24 and to give an offering according to what is said in the Torah of יהוה, “A pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons.” 
We see Myriam and Yoseph were Torah observant and brought the lesser offering, a pair of turtle dove or two pigeons…..Lev 12:1  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, Lev 12:2 “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘When a woman has conceived, and has given birth to a male child, then she shall be unclean seven days, as in the days of her monthly separation she is unclean. Lev 12:3 ‘And on the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin is circumcised. Lev 12:4 ‘And she remains in the blood of her cleansing thirty-three days. She does not touch whatever is set-apart, and she does not come into the set-apart place until the days of her cleansing are completed. Lev 12:5 ‘But if she gives birth to a female child, then she shall be unclean for two weeks, as in her monthly separation, and she remains in the blood of her cleansing for sixty-six days. Lev 12:6 ‘And when the days of her cleansing are completed, for a son or for a daughter, she brings to the priest a lamb a year old, as a burnt offering, and a young pigeon or a turtledove as a sin offering, to the door of the Tent of Meeting. Lev 12:7 ‘And he shall bring it before יהוה, and make atonement for her, and she shall be cleansed from the flow of her blood. This is the Torah for her who has given birth to a male or a female. Lev 12:8 ‘And if she is not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons, one as a burnt offering and the other as a sin offering. And the priest shall make atonement for her, and she shall be clean.’ ”
Chapter 13-14.: These two chapters deal with “leprosy”, we must first learn what is the meaning in Hebrew, in order to get understanding and spiritual insight.  We are going to try to see the natural and the spiritual aspects. Once again the Torah will make clear that יהושע is Messiah, the anointed one, the One chosen before the creation of the world.
The Hebrew word for “leprosy is “Tzarah”:  Strong’s#H6883
צרעת tsâra‛ath tsaw-rah'-ath
From H6879; leprosy: - leprosy.H6879 tsâra‛ tsaw-rah' A primitive root; to scourge, that is, (intransitively and figuratively) to be stricken with leprosy: - leper, leprous.  To lay a punishment, something causing misery. This is plague verse 3.  Plague: String’s #H5061 נגע  nega neh'-gah  From H5060; a blow (figuratively infliction); also (by implication) a spot (concretely a leprous person or dress): - plague, sore, stricken, stripe, stroke, wound.H5060; nâga‛ naw-gah'  A primitive root; properly to touch, that is, lay the hand upon (for any purpose; euphemistically, to lie with a woman); by implication to reach (figuratively to arrive, acquire); violently, to strike (punish, defeat, destroy, etc.): - beat, (X be able to) bring (down), cast, come (nigh), draw near (nigh), get up, happen, join, near, plague, reach (up), smite, strike, touch................The “nega” was a plague brought by Elohim on somebody. By reading we see that in יהושע’s time many were plagued with “tzara”. Tzara is not to be confounded with the known “leprosy” caused by dirt and place void of hygiene in some countries.
Tzara (leprosy) did make people “Tame”, unclean, thus inacceptable in the assembly of the Children of Israel verse 3....Tame means; unclean, to be foul in moral cense, contaminated..Before we go to see what יהושע did, we shall try to understand the reason of the plague. In the book of Badmidbar (number) chapter 12, we se Myriam, Aharon and Moshe’s sister having been stricken by “tzarah”:  Num 12:10 and the cloud turned away from above the Tent, and look: Miryam was leprous (Tzarah), as white as snow! And Aharon turned toward Miryam, and look: a leper!.............The reason of the plague was because she spoke against Moshe, on behalf of his Kushite wife:  Num 12:1 now Miryam and Aharon spoke against Mosheh because of the Kushite woman whom he had taken, for he had taken a Kushite woman. ..... Moshe was called of Elohim and not of man, he was anointed, and to speak against יהוה’s anointed is not a good thing to do. In general יהוה abhor “gossip” called in Hebrew “lashon Hara” or “evil tongue” which is sin:  Exo 23:1 thou shalt notH3808 raiseH5375 a falseH7723 report:H8088 putH7896 notH408 thine handH3027 withH5973 the wickedH7563 to beH1961 an unrighteousH2555 witness.H5707
Pro 17:9 He who covers a transgression seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates intimate friends.
Pro 11:13 a slanderer is a revealer of secrets, but one with a trustworthy spirit conceals a matter.
Pro 20:19 He who goes about as a slanderer reveals secrets; therefore do not associate with him who speaks smoothly with his lips.
Lashon Hara is sin unfortunately today many believers take pleasure, reporting stories from congregation to congregation or from family to family and do not even know that by doing this they found themselves in sin, bringing trouble among the brethren and upon themselves. This shouldn’t be we must train ourselves to be lovers of one another: Eph 4:30 and do not grieve the Set-apart Spirit of Elohim, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
Do you think the Ruach HaQodesh is grieved when we “gossip” and bring false reports concerning other brethren?: In 2nd Tessalonians 5:19 we read: 1Th 5:19 Do not quench the Spirit. .....To quench means to extinguish, the prophet Yrme’Yahu writes:  Jer 21:12O house of Dawiḏ! Thus said יהוה, “Render right-ruling in the morning, and deliver him who has been robbed out of the hand of the oppressor, lest My wrath go out like fire and burn, with no one to quench it, because of the evil of your deeds.
Jer 21:13 “See, I am against you, O inhabitant of the valley, rock of the plain,” declares יהוה, “who are saying, ‘Who would come down against us? And who would come into our dwellings?’
Jer 21:14 “And I shall punish you according to the fruit of your deeds,” declares יהוה. “And I shall kindle a fire in its forest, and it shall consume all that is around her.” ’ ”
The meaning here for “quench” is the impossibility to extinguish. The Hebrew word used is “kaba” to put out (light, anger) it is interesting to see that Kefa (Peter) in the book of Acts says that יהוה give the Ruach HaQodesh to those who obey him (Acts 5:32)! Christians boast today to have the “Holy Spirit” anointing in spite of rejecting the Torah, and “gossip” is rampant among the congregations.   The “tzarah” was a physical plague which everybody could see and the person was plagued seven days and after that had to present herself before the priest to se if it was clean 13:45.... Plague were brought by YHVH as we see the plagues upon Pharaoh and the Egyptians16: and the tzarah in whom the plague is…..and shall cry unclean, unclean….He is unclean, and he dwells alone, his dwelling place is outside the campThis bring us to the situation of the woman in the book of Marcos .......Mar 5:25 and a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, Mar 5:26 and had suffered much from many physicians, and spent all that she had and was no better, but rather became worse.
Mar 5:27 Having heard about יהושע, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment,
Mar 5:28 for she said, “If I only touch His garments, I shall be made well.” Mar 5:29 and immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction.
Mar 5:30 And immediately יהושע, knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My garments?” Mar 5:31 and His taught ones said to Him, “You see the crowd is thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’ ” Mar 5:32 and He was looking around to see her who did this. Mar 5:33 and the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what was done to her, came and fell down before Him and spoke to Him all the truth. Mar 5:34 and He said to her, “Daughter, your belief has healed you (read “as made you whole”). Go in peace, and be relieved from your affliction.”
You have for sure read this story, concerning this woman, we don’t know who she was, but she was well informed about יהושע. When יהושע came it was on the fourth day of creation the year 4028 from creation or the 28C.E. Many in Israel knew about the prophecy regarding Messiah, many women hoped to be the chosen vessel to carry the Messiah.....Marco (Marc) tells us that this woman had tried in vain to get ride of this plague by all means, now she also knew what the prophet Mal’akhi say:
Mal 4:1 “For look, the day shall come, burning like a furnace, and all the proud, and every wrongdoer shall be stubble. And the day that shall come shall burn them up,” said יהוה of hosts, “which leaves to them neither root nor branch. Mal 4:2 “But to you who fear My Name the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings. And you shall go out and leap for joy like calves from the stall.
To an Israelite it was known that the “wings” is an expression to call the talit, the prayer shale wear by men, we find this expression also in the Psalm 91:  Psa 91:4 He covers you with His feathers, and under His wings you take refuge; His truth is a shield and armour.  Here again the Talit is compared to יהוה having wings and feathers like a bird.  In the verse from Mal’akhi, the “Sun of righteousness” is also a reference to Messiah, according to B’reshit 1:14 were Elohim made the physical sun as a picture of Messiah who will bring light into the world.  The woman been plague with blood during twelve years, for the women who have also their monthly menstruation, you can easily understand the pain of the woman, who non stop, twelve years long was plagued. Not only that but she was to live outside the contact of other and wherever she went had to cry “unclean, unclean”.  This is why she feared:  Mar 5:33 and the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what was done to her, came and fell down before Him and spoke to Him all the truth. Now when she saw יהושע, she had in mind the prophecy from Mal’ahki and said to herself, “if I can touch is garment “wings”, I will be healed. This is why יהושע told her:  
Mar 5:34 And He said to her, “Daughter, your belief has healed you (made you whole). Go in peace, and be relieved from your affliction.”
Whose Daughter was she? Daughter of Israel
Many time we read that יהושע “cleaned” people from “Tzarah”:  Mat 8:2 and see, a leper came, and bowed before Him, saying, “Master, if You desire, You are able to make me clean.” Mat 8:3 and stretching out His hand יהושע touched him, saying, “I desire it. Be cleansed!” And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
Luk 5:12 and it came to be when He was in a certain city, that see, a man covered with leprosy saw יהושע. And he fell on his face and begged Him, saying, “Master, if You desire, You are able to cleanse me.”
Luk 5:13 and He stretched out His hand and touched him, saying, “I desire it. Be cleansed.” and immediately the leprosy left him. 
We have seen in the book of “Badmidbar “ Myriam was plagued with the “tzarah” because she spoke evil against Moshe and was only restored after Moshe prayed for her to יהוה.
Today we see already part of the restoration brought by יהושע and the plague is no more although sometime people have been found with this kind of plague.  We need to distinguish between healing and cleansing! The Plague of Tzarah was always to be cleansed.  When Messiah came, he was to fulfill what was written concerning him, in order for the people to know that he was indeed the One, send by יהוה, the Elohim of Israel:
Luk 24:44 and He said to them, “These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all have to be filled (read Matt.5:17-18) that were written in the Torah of Mosheh and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me.”
13:46…..all the day he has the infection…….his dwelling place is outside the camp
The person with the plague was to live outside the camp, first it was the punishment for everybody to know this person was plagued by Elohim, and the second reason was in order that the camp was not touched by the plague.
What do you think, how it would be today if believers were plagued with “tzarah” when speaking evil against those who teach the word, are we free from jealousy and from gossip?  Do you think today there is no spiritual Tzarah that Children of Elohim are not aware of and carry the mark of the plague everywhere? The camp was all around the Tabernacle in the four directions west, east, north, south, a picture of the world today. What does this then mean that the one who was plagued was to go outside the camp? Could it be that those who are plagued today because of evil tongue and proud like Amman the Syrian are excluded from the camp in the same way?
Lev 13:1  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh and to Aharon, saying,  Lev 13:2 “When a man has on the skin of his body a swelling, a scab, or a bright spot, and it shall become on the skin of his body like a leprous infection, then he shall be brought to Aharon the priest or to one of his sons the priests. Lev 13:3 “And the priest shall look at the infection on the skin of the body.

He does not shut him up, for he is unclean. Lev 13:12 “And if leprosy breaks out all over the skin, and the leprosy shall cover all the skin of the infected one, from his head to his foot, wherever the priest looks, Lev 13:13 then the priest shall look and see, if the leprosy has covered all his body, he shall pronounce the infected one clean. It has all turned white, he is clean. Lev 13:14 “But the day raw flesh appears on him, he is unclean.

And the priest shall pronounce him unclean, it is a leprous infection. Lev 13:26 “But if the priest looks at it and sees there are no white hairs in the bright spot, and it is not deeper than the skin, but has faded, then the priest shall shut him up seven days. Lev 13:27 “And the priest shall look at him on the seventh day. If it spreads further over the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean, it is a leprous infection. Lev 13:28 “But if the bright spot stays in its place, and has not spread on the skin, but has faded, it is a swelling from the burn. And the priest shall pronounce him clean, for it is the scar from the burn. Lev 13:29 “And when a man, or a woman, has an infection on the head or in the beard, Lev 13:30 then the priest shall look at the infection and see, if it appears deeper than the skin, and there is thin yellow hair in it, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean, it is an eruption, a leprosy of the head or beard. Lev 13:31 “But when the priest looks at the infection of the eruption and sees that it does not appear deeper than the skin, and there is no black hair in it, then the priest shall shut up the one with the infection of the eruption seven days.

Lev 13:33 then he shall shave himself, but the eruption he does not shave. And the priest shall shut up the one with the eruption another seven days. Lev 13:34 “And on the seventh day the priest shall look at the eruption and see, if the eruption has not spread over the skin, and does not appear deeper than the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him clean. And he shall wash his garments, and he shall be clean. Lev 13:35 “But if the eruption spreads further over the skin after his cleansing, Lev 13:36 then the priest shall look at him and see, if the eruption has spread over the skin, the priest need not seek for yellow hair, he is unclean.

Lev 13:38 “And when, white bright spots, a man or a woman has bright spots on the skin of the body.

Lev 13:40 “And when a man loses the hair of his head, he is bald, he is clean. Lev 13:41 “And if the hair has fallen from his forehead, he is bald on the forehead, he is clean.

Lev 13:43 “And the priest shall look at it and see, if the swelling of the infection is reddish-white on his bald head or on his bald forehead, as the appearance of leprosy on the skin of the body,
Lev 13:44 he is a leprous man, he is unclean. The priest shall pronounce him unclean, without fail, his infection is on his head. Lev 13:45 “As for the leper who has the infection, his garments are torn, and his head is uncovered, and he has to cover his upper lip and cry, ‘Unclean! Unclean!’ Lev 13:46 “He is unclean – all the days he has the infection he is unclean. He is unclean, and he dwells alone, his dwelling place is outside the camp. Lev 13:47 “And when a garment has an infection of leprosy in it, in a woollen garment or in a linen garment, Lev 13:48 or in the warp or in the weft of linen or wool, or in leather or in any leather-work, Lev 13:49 and the infection shall be greenish or reddish in the garment or in the leather, or in the warp or in the weft, or in any leather object, it is an infection of leprosy and shall be shown to the priest.

Haftorah -- 2nd M’lakhim 4:42-5:19, Mal’akhi 3:4-4:6
The haftorah bring us to some situation again which will be directly connected with what Messiah did in order for people to know that he was sent by Elohim. The first is that יהושע did what was written here concerning feeding the people he did it in a greater scale. The five breads are a picture of the Torah, and the Two fishes a picture of the two Houses, Yehuda and EphraimMar 6:37 but He answering, said to them, “You give them to eat.” And they said to Him, “Should we go and buy two hundred silver pieces worth of bread and give them to eat?” Mar 6:38 Then He said to them, “How many loaves do you have? Go and see.” And when they found out they said, “Five, and two fishes.” Mar 6:39 and He ordered them to make them all sit down in groups on the green grass. Mar 6:40 and they sat down in groups, in hundreds and in fifties. Mar 6:41 And taking the five loaves and the two fishes, looking up to the heaven, He blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to His taught ones to set before them. And the two fishes He divided among them all. Mar 6:42 and all ate and were satisfied. Mar 6:43 and they picked up twelve baskets, filled with pieces, also from the fishes. Mar 6:44 Now those who ate the loaves were about five thousand men. ........... The twelve basket left over represent that what יהושע was divinely ordered, twelve been the number for divine organisation on earth, and יהושע is the head of the Body, the Assembly. The two fishes represent the two House of Israel and Yehudah.  In the story of Na’aman, we see that pride is a factor which hinder people to get what the hope for, for it is written, “he abased the proud and give favour to the humble”.  The prophet told the man who was not an Israelite to go and to bath himself seven times in the Yordan, Na’aman in his pride of conqueror thought that the rivers of his own country were better:  Are not the Aḇanah and the Pharpar, the rivers of Dammeseq, better than all the waters of Yisra’ĕl? Could I not wash in them and be clean?” And he turned and went away in a rage. The king of Aram, who send Na’aman for healing thought that he could buy healing from the prophet with a lot of money verse 5-6.
Is it not today that many people seek those “healer” and bring money to recover, instead to search their heart and plead with Elohim for healing?  The last part of the Haftorah, tells us about the corruption among the priest and how יהוה plead with them through Mal’ahki. This is where many people will tell others that if we don’t pay tithe, we “rob Elohim” or “G-d”. The context if read from the beginning will first show that the prophet was speaking to particular people:  2Ki 4:42 Now a man came from Baʽal Shalishah, and brought the man of Elohim bread of the first-fruits, twenty loaves of barley bread, and newly ripened grain in his knapsack. And he said, “Give it to the people to eat.” 2Ki 4:43 and his servant said, “What? Do I set this before one hundred men?” And he said, “Give it to the people to eat. For thus said יהוה, ‘Eat and have some left over.’ ” 2Ki 4:44 And he set it before them, and they ate and had some left over, according to the word of יהוה. Mal 1:1 The message of the word of יהוה to Yisra’ĕl by Mal’aḵi. Mal 1:7You are presenting defiled food on My altar. But you asked, ‘In what way have we defiled You?’ Because you say, ‘The table of יהוה is despicable.’…….Who were the one bringing food to the altar, were they not the priest? But if it’s not enough let us read:  Mal 2:1 “And now, O priests, this command is for you. Mal 2:7 “For the lips of a priest should guard knowledge, and they seek (the people) the Torah from his mouth, for he is the messenger of יהוה of hosts. Mal 2:8 “But you, you have turned from the way, you have caused many to stumble in the Torah. You have corrupted the covenant of Lĕwi,” said יהוה of hosts. ……..Here the proof:  Neh 13:10 and I perceivedH3045 thatH3588 the portionsH4521 of the LevitesH3881 had notH3808 been givenH5414 them: for the LevitesH3881 and the singers,H7891 that didH6213 the work,H4399 were fledH1272 every oneH376 to his field.H770.....................The Levites didn’t bring the tithe from the tithe as it is required by the Torah:  Neh 13:11 Then contendedH7378 I withH854 the rulers,H5461 and said,H559 WhyH4069 is the houseH1004 of GodH430 forsaken?H5800 And I gathered them together,H6908 and setH5975 them inH5921 their place.H5977
What is the storehouse of Elohim, is it the “pocket” from the Pastors?
Neh 12:44 and at thatH1931 timeH3117 were someH376 appointedH6485 overH5921 the chambersH5393 for the treasures,H214 for the offerings,H8641 for the firstfruits,H7225 and for the tithes,H4643 to gatherH3664 into them out of the fieldsH7704 of the citiesH5892 the portionsH4521 appointed by the TorahH8451 for the priestsH3548 and Levites:H3881 forH3588 JudahH3063 rejoicedH8057 forH5921 the priestsH3548 and forH5921 the LevitesH3881 that waited.H5975 ......Now how it was with the tithe from tithe:  Num 18:26 “Speak to the Lĕwites and say to them, ‘When you take from the children of Yisra’ĕl the tithes which I have given you from them as your inheritance, then you shall present a contribution of it to יהוה, a tenth of the tithe.
The Levites, the priest had to bring the tenth “tithe” of the tithe as contribution. And this is what Nehemiah saw that they forgot (Nehem.13:10) and what יהוה was complaining in Mal’ahki 3:8-10.
Please let me know if today:
- We have Levites serving for us?
- We have a Temple with a storehouse to bring the fruit of the ground?
- If we follow today the Levitical Priesthood?
- Why should we bring the tithe?
I know they are many even in messianic congregation, who enforce tithing to their members, telling them that if they don’t do they will be cursed!..........2Ki 5:1 and Naʽaman, commander of the army of the sovereign of Aram, was a great man in the eyes of his master, and highly respected, because by him יהוה had given deliverance to Aram. And he was a brave man, but leprous. 2Ki 5:2 And the Arameans had gone out on raids, and had brought back captive a young girl from the land of Yisra’ĕl, and she served the wife of Naʽaman. 2Ki 5:3 And she said to her mistress, “If only my master were with the prophet who is in Shomeron! Then he would recover him of his leprosy.” 2Ki 5:4 And Naʽaman went in and reported to his master, saying, “Thus and thus spoke the girl who is from the land of Yisra’ĕl.” 2Ki 5:5 And the sovereign of Aram said, “Go, enter, and let me send a letter to the sovereign of Yisra’ĕl.” And he went and took with him ten talents of silver, and six thousand pieces of gold, and ten changes of garments. 2Ki 5:6 And he brought the letter to the sovereign of Yisra’ĕl, which said, “And now, when this letter comes to you, see I have sent Naʽaman my servant to you, so that you shall recover him of his leprosy.” 2Ki 5:7 And it came to be, when the sovereign of Yisra’ĕl read the letter, that he tore his garments and said, “Am I Elohim, to kill and keep alive, that this man sends a man to me to recover him of his leprosy? For consider now, and see how he is seeking an occasion with me!” 2Ki 5:8 And it came to be, when Elisha the man of Elohim heard that the sovereign of Yisra’ĕl had torn his garments, that he sent to the sovereign, saying, “Why have you torn your garments? Please let him come to me, so that he knows that there is a prophet in Yisra’ĕl.” 2Ki 5:9 So Naʽaman came with his horses and chariot, and he stood at the entrance of the house of Elisha. 2Ki 5:10 And Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, “Go, and you shall wash seven times in the Yardĕn, that your flesh might be restored to you, and be clean.” 2Ki 5:11 But Naʽaman became wroth, and went away and said, “See, I said to myself, ‘He would certainly come out to me, and stand and call on the Name of יהוה his Elohim, and wave his hand over the place, and recover the leprosy.’ 2Ki 5:12 “Are not the Aḇanah and the Pharpar, the rivers of Dammeseq, better than all the waters of Yisra’ĕl? Could I not wash in them and be clean?” And he turned and went away in a rage. 2Ki 5:13 And his servants came near and spoke to him, and said, “My father, if the prophet had spoken to you a great matter, would you not have done it? How much more then, when he says to you, ‘Wash, and be clean’?” 2Ki 5:14 Then he went down and dipped seven times in the Yardĕn, according to the word of the man of Elohim. And his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean. 2Ki 5:15 And he returned to the man of Elohim, he and all his company, and came and stood before him and said, “See, now I know that there is no Elohim in all the earth, except in Yisra’ĕl. And now, please take a gift from your servant.” 2Ki 5:16 But he said, “As יהוה lives, before whom I stand, I do not accept it.” And he pressed on him to accept it, but he refused. 2Ki 5:17 Then Naʽaman said, “If not, please let your servant be given two mule-loads of earth, for no longer is your servant going to make a burnt offering and slaughtering to other mighty ones (gods), but to יהוה. 2Ki 5:18יהוה grant forgiveness to your servant in this matter: when my master goes into the house of Rimmon (Syrian god) to worship there, and he leans on my hand, and I bow down in the house of Rimmon; when I bow down in the house of Rimmon, יהוה, please grant forgiveness to your servant in this matter.” 2Ki 5:19 Then he said to him, “Go in peace.” And when he had gone from him some distance,
Mal 3:4 “Then shall the offering of Yehuḏah and Yerushalayim be pleasant to יהוה, as in the days of old, as in former years.
Mal 3:5 “And I shall draw near to you for right-ruling. And I shall be a swift witness against the practicers of witchcraft, and against adulterers, and against them that swear to falsehood, and against those who oppress the wage earner in his wages and widows and the fatherless, and those who turn away a sojourner and do not fear Me,” said יהוה of hosts.
Mal 3:6 “For I am יהוה, I shall not change1, and you, O sons of Yaʽaqoḇ, shall not come to an end. Footnote: 1Jas. 1:17.
Mal 3:7 “From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from My laws and did not guard them. Turn back to Me, and I shall turn back to you,” said יהוה of hosts. “But you said, ‘In what shall we turn back?’ Mal 3:8 “Would a man rob Elohim? Yet you are robbing Me! But you said, ‘In what have we robbed You?’ In the tithe and the offering!
Mal 3:9 “You have cursed Me with a curse, for you are robbing Me, this nation, all of it! Mal 3:10 “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, and let there be food in My house. And please prove Me in this,” said יהוה of hosts, “whether I do not open for you the windows of the heavens, and shall pour out for you boundless blessing! Mal 3:11 “And I shall rebuke the devourer for you, so that it does not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor does the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” said יהוה of hosts. Mal 3:12 “And all nations shall call you blessed, for you shall be a land of delight,” said יהוה of hosts. Mal 3:13 “Your words have been harsh against Me,” said יהוה, “but you have said, ‘What have we spoken against You?
Mal 3:14 “You have said, ‘It is worthless to serve Elohim. And what did we gain when we guarded His Charge, and when we walked as mourners before יהוה of hosts? Mal 3:15 ‘And now we are calling the proud blessed – not only are the doers of wrongness built up, but they also try Elohim and escape.’ ” Mal 3:16 Then shall those who fear יהוה speak to one another, and יהוה listen and hear, and a book of remembrance be written before Him, of those who fear יהוה, and those who think upon His Name. Mal 3:17 “And they shall be Mine,” said יהוה of hosts, “on the day that I prepare a treasured possession. And I shall spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him. Mal 3:18 “Then you shall again see the difference between the righteous and the wrong, between one who serves Elohim and one who does not serve Him.
Mat 8:1  And when He came down from the mountain, large crowds followed Him. Mat 8:2 And see, a leper came, and bowed before Him, saying, “Master, if You desire, You are able to make me clean.” Mat 8:3 And stretching out His hand יהושע touched him, saying, “I desire it. Be cleansed!” And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
Mat 8:4 And יהושע said to him, “See, mention it to no one. But go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Mosheh commanded, as a witness to them.”
Metzorah – Infected One
Chapter 14. This chapter brings us to the law of cleansing verse 2, Verses 3-8 we see the procedure followed by the priest. Verse 4 the priest take the birds alive and clean, in this case pigeon or turtledove a picture of the Ruach HaQodesh, bringing up to יהוה’s throne?  Cedar-wood and scarlet and Hyssop:  Heb 9:19 for when, according to Torah, every command had been spoken by Mosheh to all the people, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people,
David after having sinned with Batsheba writes in Psalm 51:  Psa 51:7 Cleanse me with hyssop, and I am clean; Wash me, and I am whiter than snow......Yochanan write during יהושע’s impalement:  Joh 19:29 A bowl of sour wine stood there, and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and held it to His mouth.
We find the use of cedar, scarlet and hyssop in the sacrifice of the red heifer (Badmidbar 1:6)......Cedar a picture of the pride of man:  Zep 2:10 This is what they get for their pride, because they have reproached and exalted themselves against the people of יהוה of hosts. Zep 2:11 יהוה shall be awesome to them, for He shall make all the mighty ones of the earth to shrivel, while all the coastlands of the nations bow down to Him, each one from his place. Zep 2:12 “You too, O Kushites, are to be slain by My sword.” Zep 2:13 And He shall stretch out His hand against the north, and destroy Ashshur, and make Ninewĕh a waste, as dry as a wilderness.
Zep 2:14 And droves shall lie down in her midst, every beast of the nation, both pelican and bittern lodge in the tops of her columns, a voice singing at the window, ruin be at the threshold, for the cedar work is exposed.
Hyssop is small tree growing in the Mediterranean coast used also in medicinal use, and has we have seen is a picture of humility (Psalm 51:7)... In the day of cleansing, the priest is to go out of the camp to see the leper before he can come back to the camp.  Two birds alive, one will be killed in an earthen vessel over running water (Torah!) (verse 5).  Are we not an earthen vessel?  ......2Co 4:7 and we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the excellence of the power might be of Elohim, and not of us
As for the live bird, the second bird, he shall with the cedar wood, the scarlet and the Hyssop been dip in the blood of the first animal and sprinkled seven time on the man who is to be cleansed from “tzarah”.
Verse 6.It seems that the priest was now through the blood and with the cedar (pride), scarlet (sin), and hyssop (humility) making atonement for the man with leprosy to proclaim him clean.  Verse 7, the second bird after having been dip in the blood of the first bird was to be loosen and let free, as confirmation of the removal of the plague. Verse 9.After seven days the man with the leprosy shall shave the hair, the eyebrows even the hairs of all his body and wash his garments. This remains a mystery as for now I couldn’t find the relation between the air and the action of shaving. There are few references to hairs in the scriptures!  Verse 10.Now on the eight day, the man will be back in the camp and come with the priest a the door of the tent of meeting to bring two lambs for sacrifice and a grain offering with oil; ........Remember the grain offering is a “minchah”
Strong say: to apportion, that is, bestow; a donation; euphemistically tribute; specifically a sacrificial offering (usually bloodless and voluntary): - gift, oblation, offering, present, sacrifice......The oil represents the Ruach HaQodesh anointing on the sacrifice.  Verses 10-20.The atonement ceremony by the priest: He first takes the two males lame without blemish and wave them before יהוה on the eight day, demonstrating that from now it is behind the natural (number 8) pointing again to Messiah יהושע and his atoning work.  The priest takes of the blood of the guilt offering; and apply it on the right ear of the man, on the thumb of his right hand and on the toe of his right foot.  ..............This we have already seen, that it represent : - Hearing (ear), doing (thumb) and walking (toe) the way of the Torah. The right side be the side of mercy (chesed) in the tree of life.
The same is with somebody who was not able to afford two lambs it will be done with the two pigeons or turtledove.  Verses 34-57. When you enter the land of Kana’an. You may found leprosy in the house!
Here again we see that the plague of “tzarah” was not only limited to men, but also to the houses.
Keil and Delitzsch give following perspective:  The only thing that can be gathered from the signs mentioned in Lev_14:37 is, that the house-leprosy was an evil which calls to mind “the vegetable formations and braid-like structures that are found on mouldering walls and decaying walls, and which eat into them so as to produce a slight depression in the surface.”.....(Note: Cf. Sommer (p. 220), who says, “The crust of many of these lichens (like moss) is so marvellously thin, that they simply appear as coloured spots, for the most part circular, which gradually spread in a concentric form, and can be rubbed off like dust. Some species have a striking resemblance to eruptions upon the skin. There is one genus called spiloma (spots); and another very numerous genus bears the name of lepraria.”).........The process of cleansing was the same as for a man plagued with “tzerah”, and even went up to the destruction of the Houses.*....We can see that a plague from Elohim affect as well the material as the physical; both are directly linked to one another. Thus we can understand that TODAY man’s action sinning against YHVH Qadosh Torah bring trouble upon mankind!.....Lev 14:1 and יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, Lev 14:2 “This shall be the Torah of the leper for the day of his cleansing: He shall be brought to the priest, Lev 14:3 and the priest shall go out of the camp, and the priest shall look and see, if the leprosy is healed in the leper, Lev 14:4 then the priest shall command, and he shall take for him who is to be cleansed two live and clean birds, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop. Lev 14:5 “And the priest shall command, and he shall kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water. Lev 14:6 “Let him take the live bird and the cedar wood and the scarlet and the hyssop, and dip them and the live bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water. Lev 14:7 “And he shall sprinkle it seven times on him who is to be cleansed from the leprosy, and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let the live bird loose in the open field. Lev 14:8 “And he who is to be cleansed shall wash his garments, and shall shave off all his hair and wash himself in water, and shall be clean. Then after that he comes into the camp, but shall stay outside his tent seven days. Lev 14:9 “And on the seventh day it shall be that he shaves all the hair off his head and his beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair he shaves off. And he shall wash his garments and wash his body in water, and shall be clean.
Lev 14:10 “And on the eighth day he takes two male lambs, perfect ones, and one ewe lamb a year old, a perfect one, and three-tenths of an ĕphah of fine flour mixed with oil as a grain offering, and one log of oil. Lev 14:11 “And the priest who is cleansing shall present the man who is to be cleansed, with these offerings, before יהוה, at the door of the Tent of Meeting. Lev 14:12 “And the priest shall take one male lamb and bring it as a guilt offering, and the log of oil, and wave them as a wave offering before יהוה. Lev 14:13 “And he shall slaughter the lamb in the place where he slaughters the sin offering and the burnt offering, in a set-apart place. For the guilt offering, like the sin offering, belongs to the priest. It is most set-apart. Lev 14:14 “And the priest shall take some of the blood of the guilt offering, and the priest shall put it on the tip of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed, and on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot. Lev 14:15 “And the priest shall take some of the log of oil, and pour it into the palm of his own left hand. Lev 14:16 “And the priest shall dip his right finger in the oil that is in his left hand, and shall sprinkle some of the oil with his finger seven times before יהוה. Lev 14:17 “And of the rest of the oil in his hand, the priest puts some on the tip of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed, and on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot, on the blood of the guilt offering. Lev 14:18 “And the rest of the oil that is in the priest’s hand he puts on the head of him who is to be cleansed. And the priest shall make atonement for him before יהוה. Lev 14:19 “And the priest shall make the sin offering, and make atonement for him who is to be cleansed from his uncleanness. Then afterwards he slaughters the burnt offering. Lev 14:20 “And the priest shall offer the burnt offering and the grain offering on the altar. And the priest shall make atonement for him, and he shall be clean. Lev 14:21 “But if he is poor and is unable to afford it, then he shall take one male lamb as a guilt offering to be waved, to make atonement for him, and one-tenth of an ĕphah of fine flour mixed with oil as a grain offering, and a log of oil,Lev 14:22 and two turtledoves or two young pigeons, such as he is able to afford, and one shall be a sin offering and the other a burnt offering. Lev 14:23 “And he shall bring them to the priest on the eighth day for his cleansing, to the door of the Tent of Meeting, before יהוה. Lev 14:24 “And the priest shall take the lamb of the guilt offering and the log of oil, and the priest shall wave them as a wave offering before יהוה. Lev 14:25 “And he shall slaughter the lamb of the guilt offering, and the priest shall take some of the blood of the guilt offering and put it on the tip of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed, and on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot. Lev 14:26 “Then the priest pours some of the oil into the palm of his own left hand. Lev 14:27 “And the priest shall sprinkle with his right finger some of the oil that is in his left hand seven times before יהוה. Lev 14:28 “And the priest shall put some of the oil that is in his hand on the tip of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed, and on the thumb of the right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot, on the place of the blood of the guilt offering. Lev 14:29 “And the rest of the oil that is in the priest’s hand he puts on the head of him who is to be cleansed, to make atonement for him before יהוה. Lev 14:30 “And he shall prepare one of the turtledoves or young pigeons, such as he is able to afford, Lev 14:31 that which he is able to afford, the one as a sin offering and the other as a burnt offering, with the grain offering. And the priest shall make atonement for him who is to be cleansed before יהוה. Lev 14:32 “This is the Torah for one who had an infection of leprosy, who is unable to afford for his cleansing.” Lev 14:33 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh and to Aharon, saying,
Lev 14:34When you come into the land of Kenaʽan, which I am giving you as a possession, and I put a plague of leprosy in a house in the land of your possession, Lev 14:35 then shall the one who owns the house come and inform the priest, saying, ‘It seems to me that there is some plague in the house.’ Lev 14:36 “And the priest shall command, and they shall empty the house, before the priest goes in to look at the plague, so that all that is in the house is not made unclean. And after that the priest goes in to look at the house. Lev 14:37 “And he shall look at the plague and see, if the plague is on the walls of the house with sunken places, greenish or reddish, which appear to be deep in the wall, Lev 14:38 then the priest shall go out of the house, to the door of the house, and shut up the house seven days. Lev 14:39 “And the priest shall come again on the seventh day and look and see, if the plague has spread on the walls of the house,
Lev 14:40 then the priest shall command, and they shall remove the stones with the plague in them, and they shall throw them outside the city, into an unclean place, Lev 14:41 while he lets the house be scraped inside, all around, and the dust that they scrape off they shall pour out in an unclean place outside the city. Lev 14:42 “And they shall take other stones and put them in the place of those stones, and take other mortar and plaster the house. Lev 14:43 “And if the plague comes back and breaks out in the house, after he has removed the stones, after he has scraped the house, and after it is plastered, Lev 14:44 then the priest shall come and look and see, if the plague has spread in the house, it is an active leprosy in the house, it is unclean. Lev 14:45 “And he shall break down the house, its stones, and its timber, and all the plaster of the house, and he shall bring them outside the city to an unclean place. Lev 14:46 “And he who goes into the house, all the days while it is shut up, becomes unclean until evening.
Lev 14:47 “And he who lies down in the house has to wash his garments, and he who eats in the house has to wash his garments. Lev 14:48 “However, if the priest indeed comes in and looks at it and sees that the plague has not spread in the house after the house was plastered, then the priest shall pronounce the house clean, because the plague is healed.
Lev 14:49 “And to cleanse the house, he shall take two birds, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop. Lev 14:50 “And he shall kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water, Lev 14:51 and he shall take the cedar wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet, and the live bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain bird and in the running water, and shall sprinkle the house seven times. Lev 14:52 “He shall thus cleanse the house with the blood of the bird and the running water and the live bird, and with the cedar wood, and with the hyssop, and with the scarlet, Lev 14:53 and he shall let the live bird loose outside the city in the open field, and shall make atonement for the house, and it shall be clean.
Lev 14:54This is the Torah for any infection of leprosy, and eruption, Lev 14:55 and for leprosy of a garment, and of a house, Lev 14:56 and for a swelling, and for a scab, and for a bright spot, Lev 14:57 to teach when it is unclean and when it is clean. This is the Torah of leprosy.”
Chapter 15.: The issue of uncleanness in man or woman, we read again a short explanation from Keil and Delizsch:Lev 15:1 The Uncleanness of Secretions. - These include (1) a running issue from a man (Lev_15:2-15); (2) involuntary emission of seed (sperm) (Lev_15:16, Lev_15:17), and the emission of seed in sexual intercourse (Lev_15:18); (3) the monthly period of a woman (Lev_15:19-24); (4) a diseased issue of blood from a woman (Lev_15:25-30). They consist, therefore, of two diseased and two natural secretions from the organs of generation.............It is amazing that what come out of a man, his semen (sperm) which bring life, as soon as it doesn’t go in the womb of the woman, it makes somebody who comes in contact with it, unclean until the evening.:  Discharge: Strong’s#H2100 זוּב zûb Zoob A primitive root; to flow freely (as water), that is, (specifically) to have a (sexual) flux; figuratively to waste away; also to overflow: - flow, gush out, have a (running) issue, pine away, run.................Any bed become unclean, the garments, and any object on which he sits become unclean and anyone who touches must be washed. Everything coming in contact with the discharge become unclean and must be washed with water:  How it is today, this is an important issue, as for myself I believe that we should be cautious of this uncleanness: Heb 10:19 So, brothers, having boldness to enter into the Set-apart Place by the blood of יהושע, Heb 10:20 by a new and living way which He instituted for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, Heb 10:21 and having a High Priest over the House of Elohim, Heb 10:22 let us draw near with a true heart in completeness of belief, having our hearts sprinkled from a wicked conscience and our bodies washed with clean water. ………Is not the water the Torah?: Eph 5:26 in order to set it apart and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word....How it is with the woman and her monthly
19-28. She is unclean during seven days and whatsoever she comes in contact is unclean until the evening and must be washed with water. If the husband lies in the same bed, he becomes unclean during seven days (verse 24), the bed is unclean and all the garments……There is a law called the law of “nidah” which tell a woman that she will declare herself to her husband unclean at the beginning of her menstruation and at the end of the seventh day, she will immerse herself in water in order to be declared “clean”. How it is today among those turning to the Torah from among the nations, how man women are looking for this rules and apply to their life?  This is not taught or seldom taught in the assemblies, many leaders have not the courage to speak about this issue and so participate in the uncleanness of many household. We are called to be a Royal Priesthood, where are the Royal Priest in their Houses neglecting Torah study and so ignore this law. As far as I know women until this very day women still have their menstruation every month, how is it that nobody speak about the Torah for one who has a discharge, and for him who emits semen and is unclean therebyBrothers and sisters let us become those Priest lovers of Torah, who sanctify their house to make it a place of dwelling for purity and holiness. Be aware that unclean do not mean sin but unacceptable for the service or to be presented to the priest.  Today the Levitical priesthood has been set aside and we can see what יהושע has done for us, every form of offering been accomplished and thus finished through Messiah יהושע  who has cleansed us by his blood. 
Lev 15:1  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh and to Aharon, saying, Lev 15:2 “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and say to them, ‘When any man has a discharge from his flesh, his discharge is unclean. Lev 15:3 ‘And this is his uncleanness in regard to his discharge; whether his flesh runs with his discharge, or his flesh is stopped up by his discharge, it is his uncleanness. Lev 15:4 ‘Any bed becomes unclean on which he who has the discharge lies, and any object on which he sits becomes unclean. Lev 15:5 ‘And anyone who touches his bed has to wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. Lev 15:6 ‘And he who sits on any object on which he who has the discharge sat, has to wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. Lev 15:7 ‘And he who touches the flesh of him who has the discharge has to wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and shall be unclean until evening.
Lev 15:8 ‘And when he who has the discharge spits on him who is clean, then he shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. Lev 15:9 ‘Any saddle on which he who has the discharge rides becomes unclean.
Lev 15:10 ‘And whoever touches any of that which was under him is unclean until evening. And he who is carrying them up has to wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. Lev 15:11 ‘And anyone whom he who has the discharge touches without rinsing his hands in water, shall wash his garments and bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. Lev 15:12 ‘And the earthen vessel which he who has the discharge touches has to be broken, and every wooden vessel has to be rinsed in water. Lev 15:13 ‘And when he who has a discharge is cleansed of his discharge, then he shall count for himself seven days for his cleansing, and shall wash his garments, and shall bathe his flesh in running water, and be clean. Lev 15:14 ‘And on the eighth day he takes for himself two turtledoves or two young pigeons, and shall come before יהוה, to the door of the Tent of Meeting, and shall give them to the priest.
Lev 15:15 ‘And the priest shall prepare them, the one as a sin offering and the other as a burnt offering. And the priest shall make atonement for him before יהוה because of his discharge.
Lev 15:16 ‘And when a man has an emission of semen, then he shall wash all his flesh in water, and be unclean until evening.
Lev 15:17 ‘And any garment and any leather on which there is semen, shall also be washed with water, and be unclean until evening.
Lev 15:18 ‘And when a woman lies with a man, and there is an emission of semen, they both shall bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. Lev 15:19 ‘And when a woman has a discharge, and the discharge from her flesh is blood, she has to be in her separation for seven days. And whoever touches her is unclean until evening.
Lev 15:20 ‘And whatever she lies on during her separation is unclean. And whatever she sits on is unclean.
Lev 15:21 ‘And anyone who touches her bed has to wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. Lev 15:22 ‘And whoever touches any object that she sat on has to wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. Lev 15:23 ‘And if it is on the bed or on any object on which she sits, when he touches it, he is unclean until evening. Lev 15:24 ‘And if any man lies with her at all, and her monthly flow is on him, he shall be unclean seven days. And any bed he lies on is unclean. Lev 15:25 ‘And when a woman has a discharge of blood for many days, other than at the time of her monthly separation, or when she discharges beyond her usual time of monthly separation, all the days of her unclean discharge shall be as the days of her monthly separation. She is unclean. Lev 15:26 ‘Any bed on which she lies all the days of her discharge is to her as the bed of her monthly separation. And whatever she sits on is unclean, as the uncleanness of her monthly separation.
Lev 15:27 ‘And anyone who touches them is unclean, and shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. Lev 15:28 ‘But if she is cleansed of her discharge, then she shall count for herself seven days, and after that she is clean. Lev 15:29 ‘And on the eighth day she takes for herself two turtledoves or two young pigeons, and shall bring them to the priest, to the door of the Tent of Meeting. Lev 15:30 ‘And the priest shall prepare the one as a sin offering and the other as a burnt offering, and the priest shall make atonement for her before יהוה for the discharge of her uncleanness. Lev 15:31 ‘Thus you shall separate the children of Yisra’ĕl from their uncleanness, lest they die in their uncleanness when they defile My Dwelling Place which is in their midst. Lev 15:32 ‘This is the Torah for one who has a discharge, and for him who emits semen and is unclean thereby, Lev 15:33 and for her who is sick in her monthly separation, and for one who has a discharge, either man or woman, and for him who lies with an unclean woman.’ ”

Haftorah :
In the Haftorah, the prophet Amos says that יהוה will destroy the “sinful reign “from the earth (verse8) and that he will sift the House of Ya’acov who will not be destroyed, but the sinners of His people will die by the sword!.............Do you think it is a light thing to neglect the mitzvoth (commandments)? Today many people don’t even think to look if they are sinning, this is rampant among Christianity, and unfortunately also among many who have turned back to the Torah.  Shabbat keeping and going to the feast is NOT enough. We must give ourselves fully to study the Torah in order to become these vessels of honour useful to the Master.
2Ti 2:15 Do your utmost to present yourself approved to Elohim, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly handling the Word of Truth. Shaul goes on with a metaphor: 2Ti 2:20 But in a large house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some unto value and some unto no value.
2Ti 2:21 If, then, anyone cleanses himself from these matters, he shall be a vessel unto value, having been set apart, of good use to the Master, having been prepared for every good work. ....Who is the large House, is it not the Assembly of believers?  Who are this vessel, are we not a vessel unto יהוה?  If we are these vessels, let us cleanse ourselves from all what make us unclean to be prepared for good work.
Rom 6:19 I speak as a man, because of the weakness of your flesh. For even as you did present your members as servants of uncleanness, and of lawlessness resulting in lawlessness, so now present your members as servants of righteousness resulting in set-apartness....2Ki 7:3 And there were four leprous men at the entrance of the gate. And they said to each other, “Why are we sitting here until we are dead? 2Ki 7:4 “If we shall say, ‘Let us go into the city,’ the scarcity of food is in the city, and we shall die there. And if we sit here, we shall die. And now, come, let us surrender to the army of the Arameans. If they keep us alive, we live. And if they kill us, we shall die.” 2Ki 7:5 So at twilight they rose up to go to the camp of the Arameans. And when they had come to the outskirts of the Aramean camp, look, no one was there. 2Ki 7:6 For יהוה had caused the army of the Arameans to hear the noise of chariots and the noise of horses, the noise of a great army, and they said to each other, “Look, the sovereign of Yisra’ĕl has hired against us the sovereigns of the Ḥittites and the sovereigns of the Mitsrians to come against us!” 2Ki 7:7 So they rose up and fled at twilight, and left the camp as it is – their tents, and their horses, and their donkeys – and they fled for their lives. 2Ki 7:8 And when these lepers came to the outskirts of the camp, they went into one tent and ate and drank, and took from there silver and gold and garments, and went and hid them. And they came back and went into another tent, and took from there and went and hid it. 2Ki 7:9 Then they said to each other, “We are not doing right. This day is a day of good news, and we are keeping silent. And if we wait until morning light, then evil shall come upon us. And now, come, let us go and inform the house of the sovereign.” 2Ki 7:10 And they came and called to the gatekeepers of the city, and informed them, saying, “We went to the camp of Aram, and look, there is not a man or a voice of man, only horses tied and donkeys tied, and the tents as they were.” 2Ki 7:11 And the gatekeepers called, and they informed the house of the sovereign inside. 2Ki 7:12 So the sovereign rose up in the night and said to his servants, “Let me now inform you what the Arameans have done to us. They know that we are starving, so they have gone out of the camp to hide themselves in the field, saying, ‘When they come out of the city, we shall catch them alive, and enter into the city.’ ” 2Ki 7:13 And one of his servants answered and said, “Please, let some take five of the horses that are left in the city. Look, they are like the entire crowd of Yisra’ĕl that are left in it, look, they are like the entire crowd of Yisra’ĕl left from those who are consumed. So let us send and see.”
2Ki 7:14 They then took two chariots with horses. And the sovereign sent them in the direction of the camp of Aram, saying, “Go and see.” 2Ki 7:15 And they went after them to the Yardĕn. And look, all the way was littered with garments and weapons which the Arameans had thrown away in their haste. And the messengers returned and reported to the sovereign. 2Ki 7:16 Then the people went out and plundered the camp of Aram. So a seah of fine flour was for a sheqel, and two seahs of barley for a sheqel, according to the word of יהוה. 2Ki 7:17 And the sovereign had appointed the officer on whose hand he leaned to be in charge of the gate. But the people trampled him in the gate, and he died, as the man of Elohim had said, who spoke when the sovereign came down to him. 2Ki 7:18 And it came to be, as the man of Elohim had spoken to the sovereign, saying, “Two seahs of barley for a sheqel, and a seah of fine flour for a sheqel, at this time tomorrow in the gate of Shomeron,” 2Ki 7:19 that officer answered the man of Elohim, and said, “Now look, if יהוה is making windows in the heavens, is it according to this word?” And he had said, “Look, you are about to see it with your eyes, but not eat of it.” 2Ki 7:20 And so it came to be for him, for the people trampled him in the gate, and he died.
Amo 9:7 “Are you not like the people of Kush to Me, O children of Yisra’ĕl?” declares יהוה. “Did I not bring up Yisra’ĕl from the land of Mitsrayim, and the Philistines from Kaphtor, and Aram from Qir? Amo 9:8 “Look, the eyes of the Master יהוה are on the sinful reign1, and I shall destroy it from the face of the earth, except that, I do not completely destroy the house of Yaʽaqoḇ,” declares יהוה.
